Wanted to share a few sane moments from my studio. Making silver jewelry from clay is truly a labor of love. Each piece begins as a small lump of clay. The clay is composed of silver shavings in a clay base. I form the clay design, add jewels or sterling components, fire the piece in a kiln, where the clay burns off, leaving the silver. I polish, buff, and shine...then, wa-la like magic I have this solid, silver creation! The end product is such a delight! I'm always stunned and elated that such a beautiful, shiny thing can come from such humble beginnings.
And the best part, the final silver piece is a "forever" treasure. Composed of 99.9% silver, each piece can be handed down for generations to come. They truly are heirloom pieces. You will find several examples on our "Items for Sale" pages. I also have a few pieces in my Etsy shop at: lyndacadejewelry.etsy.com
The best thing about making silver jewelry from clay... it is truly therapy for a crazy world.
